Tanglewood TW15NS

Acoustic 6-String Guitar

Made by Tanglewood

Description Its a jumbo, fixed bridge, centre round hole, no cutaway, no pick-up . Made of solid wood - no veneered plywood, I think the top is ash, its pale anyway, and the body looks like mahogany. It has a long neck meeting the body at the fourteenth fret.

I'd buy the guitar again if I lost it unless I could afford a Martin. The guitar might be better with lighter strings, and a bit of cambre on the fret board wight assist speed playing. Its just great to strum and finger pick, and there is lovely depth in the tone.

Price: $250.00 (new)
Where Obtained: retail shop
Its an accoustic guitar strung with wire, and it has a lovely deep tone especially on the lower strings. It buzzes a bit especially on the G string, but this just gives it a more resonant twang. It feels realy good and the action is light, though I would prefer lighter strings. Somehow the thing just sings, I didn't mean to buy it, but I picked it up and just started playing again after 30 years!
I've always had crap guitars in the past. This one sounds really sweet especially on the lower strings with nice body and some guts in the twang. I mentioned a slight buzz which does not offend me, and the balance of the sound is away from the top string which might sound a bit feeble.
Sound Quality:
I like it
I think it will play better as it gets played more - the real wood construction should help this ... and I will get better as I play it more.
